Excerpt: I finally started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic in an effort to review the new Legacies system that has been added to the RPG. The problem that I was having is that to access the Legacy system, you have to get at least one character all the way through their first chapter quest.
Summary: Star Wars: The Old Republic is a Free-to-Play MMO where you team up with friends online to fight in heroic battles between the Republic and Empire, exploring a galaxy of vibrant planets and experiencing visceral Star Wars combat.

Pros: Good graphics, great sound, fully voiced missions, strong focus on character story allows single-player RPG experience in an MMO environment, relatively solid launch, Star Wars and MMOG fans should be pleased;
Cons: Space missions could be better, crafting system needs more items for lower levels, galactic market interface needs some work, various bugs.
